How to Avoid Excess Sweat with Botox

Although fall has arrived, the weather is staying unseasonably warm especially here in Southern California.
With rising temperatures comes the unpleasant side effect that makes all women cringe; sweat. Have you ever been working out at the gym and all of a sudden, seemingly out of nowhere you’re covered in sweat? Or even worse, have you found yourself simply running errands around town and notice that your clothes feel damp or that you could use a shower?

What To Do About Underarm Sweat

Hyperhidrosis is the medical term used to describe a condition that causes excessive sweating in the underarms, palms, and soles of the feet. Studies show that about 3% of American’s struggle with this issue that often creates problems in their personal and professional lives. Some doctors believe it’s hereditary while others believe that environmental factors can trigger the excessive sweating. While it may seem like more of a nuisance than an actual medical problem, those affected by it can attest to the fact that it makes a huge impact on their lives. There are various treatment options available to help with hyperhidrosis. A medical grade antiperspirant can be used to combat the excessive sweat. Products that contain aluminum chloride are most successful. Unfortunately, switching antiperspirants doesn’t always work and often times patients are left to seek other forms of treatment. Oral medication containing glycopyrrolate can be prescribed by a physician, but can come with unpleasant side effects such a dry mouth and blurred vision. Dr. Azizzadeh has found Botox to be an easy and effective solution for treating hyperhidrosis. Injecting Botox into the underarms is a quick procedure that does not require any recovery time. Just like Botox works to eliminate facial wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing the muscles, when injected into the underarms, it inhibits the body’s ability to create sweat. The best part is that patients can enjoy the results for up to 6 months, making it a very popular treatment for hyperhidrosis.

What To Do About Hairline Sweat

If you’ve ever tried to sneak in an early morning work out before heading to the office, then you have most likely experienced “gym hair”. This refers to the unpleasant fact that your head sweats just like underarms do. Unfortunately for most women, the process of getting ready for the day takes some time and “gym hair” can completely un-do your work ready hairstyle. According to a recent article, “blotox” is the newest rage to battling sweaty post-workout hair. Many women are opting to have Botox injected along their hairlines and into their scalps to eliminate the sweat that causes the dreaded “gym hair”. This treatment involves getting over 100 injections of Botox into the scalp, which in turn disrupts the body’s ability to create perspiration. Although “blotox” isn’t aimed to treat a true medical condition, it is making a huge positive impact on women across the country.
